The Stunning Grandeur of the World’s Great Opera Houses By David Rosenberg

Photographer David Leventi started out thinking he would be a reportage photographer. He admired Henri Cartier-Bresson and street photography, began his career interning in the archives at Magnum Photos, and shot with a Leica camera searching for the elusive “decisive moment.”

But things started to change when he began working for photographer Robert Polidori.

“I came to appreciate the different type of beauty exhibited by large-format photography,” Leventi said. “One of immersion, the ability to print photographs so large and clear that they make you feel as if you are enveloped in and existing within a space.”
